30%PTFE, Graphite and Carbon fiber reinforced PEEK(black) makes PEEK-5600LF30 a bearing grade plastic.Its outstanding friction properties( low friction coefficient, wearing resistance and higher peak pressure limit) make it an ideal material in friction application.
Details of Products：
01 The raw material of synthetic monomer is expensive.
There are two main monomers for PEEK polymerization: 4,4’-difluorobenzopheneone and hydroquinone. They are both expensive. Otherwise, it has higher requirement for the particle size and purity of sodium salt used.
02 The reaction condition is harsh and the cost is high.
The process of PEEK polymerization must be conducted under anaerobic state with 310-340℃. To get PEEK resin in higher purity, crude product should go through alcohol refinement and washing process dozens of times.
03 High technology requirement
PEEK possesses good processing property. Because its melting point is as high as 343℃ and it is of good adhesion, there are high requirements for the material and structure of material tube,screw and mould of molding equipment and temperature control of the equipment.
04 There are many kinds of products and high cost of research and development in the early stage.
In order to satisfy the requirements of customers for various working condition, we provide not only the commonly used general brand like carbon fiber reinforced and glass fiber reinforced PEEK, but also antistatic brand , electric brand, wearing resistant brand , high strength brand, etc. Meanwhile, it requires a lot of R D work like designs of structure, mould, process and trail mold.
05 Small batch of products and many non-standard specifications.
PEEK is widely used in many industries because of its outstanding comprehensive properties. However, most of them are used on special occasions on equipment, therefore, their outline dimension, structural characteristic and specification are different so that we are exposed to more than 1500 kinds of PEEK products at present.
06 Most of them are in trail stage and the promotion cost is high.
PEEK synthesis has been monopolized by Victrex and this material has been promoted and used for 30 years at broad. However, the understanding and application of PEEK has just begun at home. Many customers are in the trail phrase so that the promotion cost is relatively high.
07 The requirement of product is high and there are many processing procedures.
Because of the high price of PEEK, relative high requirements for products from customers, strict control of appearance quality, tolerance and surface finish, and complicated structures of some products, it requires more processing procedures, participants and cost.
